Kansas City over Tampa Bay

4:10 PM EST. Aaron Civale (RHP - TAM) is a weak favorite, as he’s been laboring through the last few years with 200 IL days since the start of 2021. Civale is just 2-4 this season, and in his last turn, he allowed five runs on six hits over 5.1 IP versus the Blue Jays, where he walked four and struck out three. It was the fourth time he has allowed five or more runs in a start. Over his last six turns, Civale has 26 Ks to 12 BBs in 32.2 IP with a bloated ERA of 8.48.

Meanwhile, Brady Singer is having a strong season and is in particularly good form lately, as he has allowed one earned run in four of his last five starts. Over the five starts, Singer has a 2.63 ERA with 33 strikeouts over 27.1 innings pitched and a 22% K-BB. Oh, by the way, the Rays offense is striking out 25% of the time versus RHP over the past month while hitting just .225. As a pooch, all the value lies with Singer and the Royals here.

For instance, a baseball game at most sportsbooks has 20 to 25 cent margins

Arizona     -150

Detroit      +125

That’s a 25 cent margin but at Pinnacle, it’ll be an 9 cent margin (see example)

Arizona       -145

Detroit    +134

If you bet on sports daily, Pinnacle is a must have because of their low margins.

St. Louis -1½ over Chicago

7:15 PM EST. While this is an attack on Jameson Taillon (RHP - CHC), we’ll note that Miles Mikolas allowed one run on two hits and a walk while striking out four over five innings in a no-decision against Boston last Saturday. Mikolas threw 54 of his 79 pitches for strikes, and despite his solid performance, manager Oliver Marmol decided to go to the bullpen instead. Mikolas has allowed three runs or fewer in six of his outings this season. While his ERA is high at 5.77, his xERA is much lower at 4.12, and a correction to the good could be on the way in that department, as he has an unlucky Batting Average of Balls in Play of .320 and an unlucky strand rate of just 66.2%.

As for Taillon, he took the loss after allowing three runs on six hits while walking two and striking out four over just 4.2 IP versus the Pirates on Sunday. Of his 92 pitches, just 55 went for strikes, and it was the second start in a row he failed to pitch five innings while also being the third straight turn he walked multiple hitters. Taillon looks reliable on the surface with a 2.20 ERA, but his xERA is higher than Mikolas’ at 4.69. In May, Taillon has 13 Ks to 7 BBs in 14.2 IP, and his xERA is an even more bloated 5.45. Taillon has been bothered by stiffness in his back, and there is a good chance he’s not 100%, which only adds fuel to the fade fire. We’re not letting up on Taillon here, and we’re going for the kill with the Red Birds on the run line.
